I've stayed at several BW Plus hotels and this one is great. Only issue was no directions to parking and hotel lobby. Parking is in back and no directions to the lobby (the back door is locked). Had to call the hotel to get directions to the lobby, a long walk for my wife. Otherwise it was a great stay.

Thanks for your feedback and the compliment. I apologize that the parking was not clear. When you pull in the hotel the front door is at the covered area, and there is a sign indicating lobby there as well. If you pulled in to the side street I can see how you might go to the back parking instead of... More

We originally planned on only staying 4 nights but decided to stay a few more. Staff were always very friendly and accommodating. We noticed someone was smoking down the hall and it appears they had a few complaints and dealt with it immediately. I don't know what they did by the smoke smell was completely gone in less than 1/2... More

The whole breakfast thing did not go well. We had to wait to be seated. Wait again for someone to take our order. And then wait some more while the food was prepared. We had other things to do! It's really irritating when people seated after you have their food and you're still waiting to order. As with most properties... More

Your feedback is appreciated and used to help us improve. I apologize that the restaurant service was slow. We do offer Grab and Go Brown Bag breakfast options as well.

My cousin and I recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn. We utilized our vouchers every morning for breakfast. We had the pleasure of being served by Christine L and she was excellent. Every morning was a little brighter with her happy disposition and accommodating service.

The best thing about the Rio was the wonderful service we received from restaurant staff. Jonathon was great, he started our days off with a smile, excellent personal service, and genuine care. We've been to many high end restaurants on three continents, and have not come across a more personable, efficient, and friendly food server as Jonathon. The food at... More

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Asked front desk staff for information regarding transportation to the tram. Didn't get much help, so I went back the next day and was lucky enough to speak with Trey, who was exceptional! He spent quite a while making phone calls to check out the options, then called back to make reservations.... More

Friendly staff, always greeting you! The location is great if you have a car. You're close to the freeway, and a short drive from old town. This is a favorite tour bus overnight stop--there were four tour buses in the parking lot when we were there. Our room was a bit on the small side, but still comfortable--except that the... More

Great location off I-40 and within walking distance to Old Town. Well kept hotel with great staff, Breakfast at attached restaurant with $6 credit was a great breakfast deal allowing menu options rather than buffet. Staff provided excellent recommendation for local dining.
